There's been a lot of chatter lately about Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera's latex outfits.

But really, all this "who wore it first, who wore it better?" banter is moot, because the real answer is that twenty years ago, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper were the originals.

As always, everything old is new again, and evidently the recent 1980s style revival shows no signs of slowing: witness the new Plastix Collection from Orly.
Even if you're not brave enough to encase your limbs in latex, you can get a touch of the stuff on your fingers and toes. Choose from four Decade-of-Excess-inspired shades (Old School Orange, Retro Red, Purple Pleather, and Viridian Vinyl, $7.50 each) that transform nails into an odd finish that's smooth, rubbery and shiny, yet also kind of matte.

In other words, very cool.
They're the perfect accent to the pops of neon that showed up all over the Fall 2010 runways, and are an easy way to show how much you love the 80s.
